Hardened stain on glass/ceramic stove top?

Hi, was making some sweet soup and some drops of water might've spilled on the surface and now it became hardened and formed a web-like patch (tiny circle). I tried the typical cleaning procedure of wiping with detergent and that did nothing. How can I get this type of stain off a flat surface stove? It's a new stove that just came in 2/3 weeks ago. Also any suggestions on how to clean these stoves would be much appreciated!

Possibly looks like sugar crystals. I would first try boiling some water on the stove, and slowly drip some of the boiling water onto it, and see if it dissolves.

For general cleaning, you should generally use ceramic cooktop cleaners on it.

Soaking overnight with some wet paper towels will dissolve sugar or starch AROUND the burner.
ON the burner, it gets caramelized into a glassy layer like the "seasoning" on an iron skillet.

I have tried with baking soda and vinegar, and just wiping against the stain but it didn't come off. Ill try with boiling water and soaking overnight as well as I might've rushed the wiping process and did not let it dissolve. Would the razors that come with cleaning kits on amazon work for these types of 'stuck on' stains? Thanks everyone for the responses!
